Promoting Screening

The Prevention Hub brings awareness to the needs of diverse populations and builds a training infrastructure to help community members determine levels of risk in children and adolescents, and direct them towards prevention services, when appropriate.  

Universal screening for common risk factors for alcohol and drug misuse, early signs of substance use disorders, social needs and mental health issues help identify youth that may need supportive services, have had adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) or whose families might need support. The Prevention Hub staff can provide information on why screening is important for youth and families, what practices can be implemented to support universal screening in schools or other settings, and what evidence-based screening tools are available that best meet the needs of the population being served. These resources can help you get started with establishing this important practice in your setting.
